Hi everyone!
I need some advice again.
At the moment I am using Hurricane 2 Neo, but I am starting to get the feeling (especially since I started to play against better players) that it is a little too direct for me and my skill level.
I have been thinking about switching it after it has run its course.
I would like something that has a higher throw and margin of error.
Is H3 Neo a good change? Some of the players in my club also use Palio CJ8000.
What would you recommend?

Most Chinese rubbers are pretty direct. H3 is softer than H2, but not by much.

You can try cheap ones like 729-2, Loki 1, 3, 5 or yes a softer sponged version of the CJ8000.

How about the yinhe rubbers (Earth 2, Mercury, Jupiter etc.)?
Are they any good?

I've tried a few Yinhe rubbers: Big Dipper (original and IV), Jupiter, and Saturn Pro. Very good rubbers for the price.

I guess I prefer the original BD, and I believe it's also the cheapest among all I've tried.

All the stuff made by Yinhe is good, including blades, rubbers (SP, LP, inverted) and accessories - cleaning sponges, rollers

I would say most recommendations are good.

Get either 729-SuperFX-C or 729-2 or 729-08 ( tacky forehand rubbers but slow so you get more control )

729-5 or MarkV if you are an absolute beginner struggling with spin.


CJ8000-Spin is also a good choice.

Yinhe Sun/Moon/Earth/Mars --- are probably good enough.

Too fast for beginners probably,
Yinhe Jupiter/Jupiter-II --- are in-line or faster than H2-Neo and H2-original ... so avoid this.

Yinhe Saturn --- I have not had the chance to try it so can't really comment on its properties.

Yinhe? Brett recommends Mercury II (which you can get for about USD5 from AliExpress). I like Yinhe 9000 myself (because it's available for about $5 also). Big Dipper is also nice, but it's more like a $15-20 rubber (depending on whether it's on sale).

Frankly, I've stopped worrying about rubber. Most of it works as well as most others. The only one I've found to be utterly useless was Reactor Ckylin. There were also a few I didn't like because they were a mite too slow - various 999s, the KTL XP/XT series, and H3. Didn't mean I couldn't use them, or that it'd have made much difference in my game. The BLADE, now... that's a different story. Makes far more difference than the rubber does.

Currently using... Tenergy 05.. :lol: And 60 Second Eagle on the backhand.

Yup. I ended up going with Earth II medium from Yinhe.
Haven't tried it in a game yet tho. It feels really similar to what I'm used to, but it has a softer feel and more dwell time.
I like it.
